Exodus and redemption in Toni Morrison’s Paradise: a magical encounter with the Bible
Hartnell, Anna (2009) Exodus and redemption in Toni Morrison’s Paradise: a magical encounter with the Bible. In: Hawkins Benedix, B. (ed.) Subverting Scriptures: Critical Reflections on the Use of the Bible. New York, U.S.: Palgrave Macmillan. ISBN 9780230610699.
Focusing on writers who approach the Bible as a source that is both instructive and dangerous,Subverting Scriptures seeks to provide an academic analysis of cultural biblical saturation at a time when measured voices are necessary to counterbalance politically motivated religious rhetoric. Using as its point of departure the current political landscape – where the Bible is drawn on freely and unabashedly without critical reflection to legitimate and justify all manner of agendas – the contributors in this collection engage the Bible in new, imaginative, and critical ways, in the hopes of creating a new space for dialogue.
